Creative dive bar with lots of vegan options - Edit

This place is fun and definitely a blast from the past to my punk rock days. It's a dive bar, but clean, with attentive staff, fun themes, and food & drink specials. For instance, Sundays is Arts and Crafts day with 1/2 off Tot orders. They have lollipops on every table, cute little plastic rings, and fake tattoos to have fun with.

The drinks are really fun, many are sugary, but they're delicious. The Kitty Tiki drink comes with the option of keeping the adorable cat mug the drink comes in, huge plus since I'm a sucker for anything cat shaped! I also tried the Hawaiian shaved ice drink and pop rock drink, all super good. For food, I decided on the vegan pickle chicken sandwich with spicy vegan mayo and it was delicious!

If you're into a fun, punk rock bar, this is your haven. Check the website for specials and themes. Will be back on my next visit to Philly.

It was ok and interesting - Edit

it's a bar, so its bar food firstly. the burgers on Wed was $4 and my husband had 2. Not because it was great. Because it was $4. As another reviewersaid its alot like a freezer ale burger. But it was warm. people raved about the Tots...but they were just tots. I also had the Fried pickle burger which was really good at $9.50 wouldnt specifically buy it again, but it was enjoyable for a non vegan chic sandwich.

Ok, not great - Edit

I went on a Wednesday so the good thing was you could get a vegan burger for $4. The bad news was the burger really wasn't that good, tasted like one of the ones you'd find in any freezer aisle. Most of the veggie stuff wasn't vegan, including the tots they are known for! Did like the ambience, it was a cool place.

Pros: Some vegan options, Some good deals (eg $4 vegan burger on Wednesday)

Cons: Most veggie stuff not vegan, Burger not very good

Mixed opinions... - Edit

I have to say that this is a bar with bar food and the fact that they include vegan bar food is amazing. My opinions are only partially valid because 1, the place was CRAZY busy when I was there and 2, I am not a greasy food fan. I tried the vegan cheese steak and was happy to be able to actually have a typical Philly food since I grew up there. It was definitely overpriced, especially considering the fact that it did not come with the cheese, you had to add that for an extra charge. It also did not come with fries or anything, so that was yet another charge. I would have rather things be priced higher and include those things rather than me seeing that I have to add to my already expensive sandwich. Needless to say, the food was really good. I also had the salsa and guac, which was awesome. I am glad to have visited and I know I can bring people here if I am with non vegan friends and in search of a bar. I would say this place is a good hangover place.

Vegan Burger and Tots Tots Tots Tots Tots - Edit

Would give 5 stars if happy cow allowed it for non-vegan restaurants! First off, the tots, they're amazing, secondly, the tots. Overall has a bunch of Vegan and Vegetarian options, good beers and great cocktails. Does half off the whole vegetarian menu for meatless Mondays and has a Vegetarian option that can be made Vegan for their $1 taco Tuesday and my favorite is Wednesday they do a $3.50 veggie burger that I get Vegan and they have a whole bunch of toppings to add on. Don't forget though, Tots, Tots and more Tots! Never had a problem with them smell other then when in the bathroom but that's a given and first off, it's a dive bar, fun place with a good jukebox and excellent food, if you don't feel comfortable at a dive bar then you're gonna miss out on a lot of good food and drinks, as simple as that.

Pros: Plenty of Vegan options, Dive Bar, Tots

Great vegan cheese steak - Edit

Unfortunately I have to agree with the other reviewer - the downstairs smelled a little like vomit, obviously one of the last things you want to smell while sitting down to dinner (or anywhere for that matter.)

The vegan cheese steak, although over priced in my opinion (about $10 for a small hoagie roll with beef flavored seitan and daiya cheese) was very good, and I'll probably get one to go next time I'm in Philly.

Tattooed Mom - Edit

Two magic words...tater tots. I love 'em. So naturally I was drawn to Tattooed Mom. I fully intended to order a large meal, but when we walked in the restaurant smelled unappealing. The restaurant itself was pretty green (walls) and the decor was of the vintage hipster persuasion. Given the smell of the restaurant I was immediately turned off, so I decided that tater tots were all I needed. They were pretty good. Perhaps I'll give them another shot when I return to Philly.
